Thermofluids

Thermofluids

A specialisation in Thermofluids will provide you with the fundamental skills and knowledge in thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics so you can thrive in rapidly evolving industry sectors that demand high levels of thermofluid-related skills such as energy and transport.

This specialisation also offers advanced thermofluids courses that will enable you to contribute to complex socio-environmental problems ranging from bushfires through to predicting and managing algal blooms, salinity and outflows from rivers and water bodies.
